Growers Notes:

    • Dahlias are planted in spring after the soil has warmed up to 60 degrees
    • Plant around the same time you would plant tomato plants and other warm season crops
    • Add a 4″ layer of compost on the garden bed, and till/mix into the soil.
    • Plant dahlia tubers horizontal (on their sides) in an area that receives 6-8 hours of sunlight per day.
    • Wet Climates: No extra water until sprout is 5”-6” tall, normal spring rains will give the soil and your tubers all the moisture it needs.  Tubers will rot in soggy soils
    • Dry Climates:  Your tubers need moisture in the soil to grow.  If your soil is dry during the spring, water lightly once a week to add and retain moisture in the soil
    • After the dahlia sprout is 6”, deep soak every 2-3 days
    • Fertilizer:  Use a slow release, organic fertilizer when you plant, with a low nitrogen number ( low 1st number)  Apply a 5-10-10 granular fertilizer 30 days after you plant.
